Does Race Matter in Educational Diversity? A Legal and Empirical Analysis

This article was just posted to SSRN and is forthcoming in Rutgers Race and the Law Review. Abstract: This article reports The Educational Diversity Project’s findings on two empirical questions: (1) Do students differ by race upon entering law school? (2) Do any differences contribute educational benefits to students, institutions, or society? Extensive quantitative and qualitative empirical data support the finding that a racially diverse law student body provides educational benefits. Many differences students present are associated with diversities of backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, expectations, and outlooks that are related to their race. Diversity fosters richer interactions and positive educational outcomes. Race contributes to the achievement of educational diversity that benefits students, their institution, and society.

Grant Opportunities – Law School Admissions Council

The LSAC Research Grant Program funds research on topics related to the mission of LSAC.  While there are many possible research topics that could be funded, there are three topics of particular interest (see below). Projects will be funded for $200,000 and the next deadline to apply is 2/1/12.

RESEARCH ON PIPELINE ISSUES AND ACCESS TO LAW SCHOOLS FOR MINORITY POPULATION
Within this arena, LSAC is specifically interested in studies that focus on African American males, but any such study must necessarily include comparison or control groups outside of that population, and findings should also allow for generalizations across institutions. Therefore, any such study should draw data from several Institutions.

RESEARCH ON ACCESS TO LAW SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
Specifically, LSAC is interested in a variety of studies that examine the experiences of students with disabilities in law school. Such studies might include examinations of effective and ineffective accommodation strategies, accommodation request and participation rates, and outcomes for students with disabilities, among many others. The aim of this request is to foster research that will result in findings that allow for generalizations across institutions. Therefore, any such study should include comparison or control groups and draw data from several institutions.

RESEARCH ON LAW SCHOOL ACADEMIC ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
Law schools have developed a wide array of academic support programs, and the financial commitment to these programs often is substantial. Studies in this area might include a survey of program types and methods, and analyses of effective and ineffective strategies. The aim of this request is to foster research that will result in findings that are applicable to other programs. Therefore, any such study should include comparison or control groups and draw data from several institutions.
